The School of Education is committed to fostering values of scholarship, leadership and service among teacher candidates and their students.

By offering a course of study that emphasizes the acquisition of professional knowledge, the expansion of personal insight and an appreciation of diversity, the School of Education continues to further the mission of Dominican University.

Our education programs are built on a solid academic foundation and integrate the core values of rigorous scholarship, collaborative leadership and a commitment to service. Every program combines a theoretical base with an intensive practicum experience, giving our candidates broad exposure to the responsibilities of the teaching and administrative positions they aspire to attain.

In each course you will experience how the School of Education accepts and witnesses to the Dominican Catholic tradition while encouraging respect for other traditions. In partnership with internationally recognized faculty, you will prepare to be a teacher and an educational leader. You will explore the latest educational research, integrate instructional technologies into curricula, and develop the knowledge and skills to address the diverse learning and social-emotional needs of today’s students.

We offer several master’s degree programs, graduate endorsement and approval programs, and undergraduate programs. Each course of study will further your professional development and capacity to contribute to education in grades P-12 in metropolitan Chicago and the nation.


The School of Education is housed on Dominican's Main Campus in River Forest, just 10 miles west of downtown Chicago.
